Events planned for MLK Day
Parade set for Monday
W 012014 MLK PARADE 02
Gataveo Simmons, 14, of Little Bethel Baptist Church marches down West Main Street during the 2014 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day parade in Downtown Statesboro.
Several community events are planned in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, and Bulloch County NAACP President Pearl Brown hopes to encourage people to “unite as God’s children.” A prayer breakfast, an afternoon parade and a community-wide service hopefully will bring people of all races and walks of life together in harmony and “working together,” she said. The prayer breakfast, sponsored by the Bulloch County Youth Council, also will serve as a fundraiser for the group, which “operates under the umbrella of the NAACP,” Brown said.
